Overview

The Gospels of the New Testament describe the life of Jesus of Nazareth, from his birth in Bethlehem and his travels through Galilee to his trial and death in Jerusalem. In the Footsteps of Jesus goes even deeper into the story of Jesus' life by following his path through the Holy Land on richly detailed maps and bringing each pivotal place to life through the latest archaeological and historical discoveries. Breathtaking photography and unique period artifacts complement fascinating text and specially created maps by National Geographic cartographers.


In the Footsteps of Jesus illustrates not only the stories of Jesus’ life but also the characters and events that shaped his journey and ultimately made him one of the most famous figures the world has ever known. This compelling and beautiful book traces Jesus' path from Bethlehem to Nazareth; throughout his "mission triangle" of Lower Galilee and into the Decapolis; and ultimately on his journey to Jerusalem, the Garden of Gethsemane, and Golgotha.


Expertly crafted text describes what is known and speculated about Jesus' youth, life, and work while showing the larger events that combined to shape the world in which he lived. Both the text and sidebars describe the places in Jesus' world that can still be experienced by visitors, as well as key sites that have since disappeared but can be reconstructed by forensic means.


Captivating elements include quotes attributed to Jesus; historical data derived from Jewish sources such as the Mishnah, and Roman sources such as Josephus; census data and other documents; key facts, and insightful main text. Newcomers to biblical history as well as the devoted will find this an invaluable reference and a gorgeous book for the home library.

I loved this book so much that I have already given one as a gift. Being able to put the history of what was going on at the time Jesus would have been alive is amazing! There are so many things in the Bible that are hard to understand without having the history! Loved it!

              I thought this was a DVD when I ordered, but jumped right in reading when it arrived. Not really footsteps (since we can't quite know), but very good historical context to what was happening at this time.

                      I'm not done reading this book yet as it is rather large but so far it is very interesting. I'm learning so much about our Lord, it is so interesting to see where He walked when He was on earth. When I start reading I have a terrible time putting it down, that's how interesting it is. Not only is it interesting but very knowledgeable. The photography is gorgeous.

                        Even though I wish I had seen this before I went to Israel it is a wonderful tool for reinforcing and giving considerable depth to that memorable personal experience.
